Introducing Swivl


One of the tools we're setting up for every Star Classroom is a "Swivl." These devices (which somehow always remind me of R2D2 from Star Wars) make grabbing video in lessons - for whatever purpose - so simple.

If any academies would like additional training over and above that provided through Star Classroom there are two help videos on the training.dret.tv channel, and we'd be happy to set up a short workshop for you.

  1. This looks fab! Where would I then save the video to be retrieved by either myself or pupils easily and securely?

  3. The video is stored in the app on the iPad (you can set it to upload automatically but I would definitely leave that as off!) - you can then edit it or share it from the iPad just as you would anything else, so for example this particular clip was just uploaded directly to DRET.tv and Google Drive, but you could edit it in iMovie first to just pick out the part you wanted. So if I am making a recording, I use my own iPad and then I have the confidence of knowing I keep control of it.

  4. The video is in the iPad - so you then have control over where it goes.
